Question

I'm growling and hissing, although denied

A mortar and pestle are kept nearby

I wriggle and writhe

For I'm quite alive

Ensuring the fauna can grow and survive

I reach with my fingers and feel the wave

The master of many a hoggish knave

To roam, I'm not keen

Equator's my scene

I live on the isles and slither 'cross beans

mortar and pestle is really clever for it though

the intestines???

John B takes this one!

Growling and hissing, although denied (stomachs growl, and occasionally make a hissing noise that people often deny)

Mortar and pestle (teeth)

Slither and write, as well as feel the wave (peristalsis)

Reaching with fingers (microvilli)

Master of hoggish knaves (gluttons, slave to the gut)

Equator (the middle of a person)

The isles (pancreatic islets) and the beans (of the kidney variety)

Edit: spoiler with explanation

The clue that had me worried was living on the isles: you would have to know about the islets in the pancreas (where insulin is made) to get that one.

Oh, so simple, I didn't think that would be the misunderstood line. Very good (and intriguing) riddle, plasmid.
